'Premier League player' to be unmasked by judge


High Court judge Mr Justice Tugendhat will later this month unveil the identity of a man – reported to be a Premier League footballer – who obtained an injunction to stop a newspaper publishing a story about his private life.

Press Gazette revealed that the injunction would not be done away with until November 19 so as to allow the man, identified only as JIH, to appeal the decision.

The man, identified only as JIH, went to court in August after News Group Newspapers published articles about him.

He obtained a temporary injunction at a private hearing before Justice Nicol after his lawyers argued that, unless the order was granted he and others would suffer distress and humiliation.

The Telegraph reported on Saturday that the man is a Premier League footballer.
